proposed on, and he was desperate. during the overheated years, atlanta had told him he mortgage for more than half a million dollars. far more than he could afford on his annual salary of less than $50,000. and despite various provisions in the original loan he was no arriving at the point of financial ruin. henry said that when he got his mortgage he assumed that the lender knew what he was doing i qualify him for such a large alone. when he wrote to ask him he was worried that only but losing his own, but about losing his family's entire future. as we all know, henry was not alone. people across the country were sold mortgages that were not sustainable. some have their eyes open, seeking to ride the wave of rising housing prices. others, like anna, were led astray. for many borrowers the numbers were ignored or fudged to get the loan approved. this kind of reckless lending was an endemic problem but i firmly believe the rule we are announcing today that existed a decade ago, many people like henry could've been spared the anguish of losing their homes and having their credit destroyed.

was experiencing. i asked for a show of hands, how many in the audience, mostly people from the atlanta area, was aware that the state of georgia had a drought plan. and i think three hands went up. here's a case where they developed a drought plan but it was never implemented because it became wet. and so it sat on the shelf and people were unaware of it. >> they might go all, we've got rain, we've been doing okay for the last 30 days, we're fine. that's not the case. >> i think it's important, going back to roger's definition to start with, you know, droughts are this extended period of deficiency of precipitation, obviously can be exacerbated by high wind, by high temperatures, by low relative humidity and so forth. so it's this combination of intensity and direction, but the real key is the fact that how this intensity and duration over a period of time begins to impact on the environment and on people. and so that's when you get into agricultural drought, hydrologic drought, and there's another type of drought sometimes referred to which is more socioeconomic drought, which is kind of a
